Conservative organizations are rallying to defend President-Elect Donald Trump’s Cabinet appointees from signs of a mounting smear campaign from liberals and their allies in the media.
America Rising Squared (AR2) launched the website ConfirmPruitt.comWednesday to support Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt’s nomination to serve as the Environmental Protection Agency administrator. Just a week earlier, the Judicial Crisis Network launched a campaign called ConfirmSessions.com to support Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions’ confirmation to the position of attorney general.
Both designated appointees have received an inordinate share of fire from left-aligned organizations and figures in the media.
“Senate Democrats now face a choice between the extreme environmentalist Left and commonsense, thoughtful leadership at the EPA,” Brian Rogers, executive director of AR2, said of Pruitt in a press release Wednesday. “America Rising and our conservative allies are proud to stand with Attorney General Pruitt and look forward to working to see him confirmed.”
